ICON NUMBER : 40002

Mother of God Smolenskaya, Russian metal travelling icon with enamel, 19 / 20th century, size 10.9 x 8.5 cm, price € 390,-.

The Mother of God "Hodigitria" (she who shows the way) is strictly frontal and in half figure. She holds the sitting child on her left arm and raises het right arm, which might be a sign of prayer (as in the Deesis) or just pointing to her son.The latter blesses with his right hand and holds a Scripture roll in his left hand. That refers to his mission of bringing the Glad Tidings, but it may also be a symbol of the incarnated Word (see Joh 1:14), because the Greek word "logos" (which means "word") was also the term for scripture roll. The authenticity of every icon is guaranteed. Every Icon is sold with extensive written expertise.
